Links (also known as Links Magazine, or Links: The Best of Golf in full) is a U.S. bi-monthly golf magazine published by Purcell Enterprises, Inc. in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Links has a mission "of bringing the most engaging, sophisticated and surprising content to its audience of passionate golfers."[2]

Overview

Links: The Best of Golf magazine targets serious golfers and provides reviews of both international and national golf courses, and often focuses on course design, course architects, real estate, and golf equipment. The magazine features many advertisements and product showcases. Links also publishes an annual "Premier Properties Guide", a resource for buyers of golf real estate. The issue features "America's 100 Premier Properties", the oldest list of the best private golf communities in the country.

History

The magazine was launched in 1988 as Southern Links, a publication focused regionally around Hilton Head where the headquarters are located. In 1991 the company expanded its offerings with a new publication Western Links but ultimately merged the two publications in 1993 into a national publication Links: The Best of Golf.[2]

In 2008, Links celebrated its 20th year in its January/February issue featuring Annika Sörenstam on the cover.
